The California State Council on Developmental Disabilities (SCDD) is excited to announce the second in a series of monthly California Statewide Self-Advocacy Chats and encourage those who are interested to join in the conversation!
What/Why: The “California Statewide Self-Advocacy Chats” are designed to provide self-advocates throughout California the opportunity to speak about topics that they want to talk about. After each meeting, participants will receive a follow-up email with resources and information related to the topics discussed.
Information and resources shared will be designed to help advocates learn about issues important to them and advocate for change in their communities.
When: The third Wednesday of each month.
The second California Statewide Self-Advocacy Chat will be held on Wednesday, November 18st @ 11:00 A.M.
This month’s topic is Employment Awareness: Addressing Barriers to Employment for Californians with I/DD
Some questions to think about for the first California Statewide Self-Advocacy Chat:
What has your experience been like looking for a job?
Have you ever experienced stigma around expectations to work? If so, how did you address the situation?
Please share any tips, suggestions or thoughts on addressing barriers to employment for people with Intellectual and Developmental Disability (I/DD)
This month’s Chat will be facilitated by Riana Hardin, Self-Advocacy Coordinator for the California State Council on Developmental Disabilities.
